While you can find out just so much about watching film on an athlete or talking to him on the phone, there is a major advantage to seeing the athlete live. I have been fortunate to see more high school football players in person in the state of Florida than any other source.
What I will do is use my 30 plus years of evaluating talent on the football field to give up a complete opinion on the top football players in the Class of 2005.
I hope you enjoy this rare look into the football players in the state from a firsthand:
PLAYER: Jetavious Best.
SCHOOL: Palm Beach Lakes
www.floridakids.us PRE-SPRING RATING: 71.
THE SCOOP ON THIS FLORIDA KID: Coaches across Palm Beach County have been watching this standout mature and improve over the past few years, and now, everyone is impressed at what he has been able to do attract the attention of several colleges.
EVALUATION: This is another quality football player who has jumped onto the radar screen with his ability to run (4.49) the ball and make big plays.
THE INSIDE STORY: When you happen to be in the same county as one of the nation's elite (Antone Smith) running backs, there is reason to have plenty of motivation to show that you can be at that same level.
